I know its 9 months away. But i'll make it now so we can include the play-off teams before the groups are drawn. Should be a laugh.

Basically the draw for the beginning is simple.
Pick which 4 teams will fill the final spots.
Turkey vs. Croatia
Estonia vs. Ireland
Czech Republic vs. Montenegro
Bosnia and Herzegovina vs. Portugal

These happen on the 11th or 12th November and 15th November for the 2nd matches.
5 points for each team that you get right.

You have 1 month (Well til the 10th November) to pick these 4 winners. I'm writing everyones answers down on the 10th so if you change it afterwards, tough. You've had a near month and it stops cheating :)

I'm in!

Turkey-Croatia sounds like a fucking epic game(s) of football. And no matter how much I hate Turkey, I can see them getting past Croatia. Turkey to win.

Ireland-Estonia should see Ireland through, but Estonia can cause an upset. I'll go with the favourites though, since I'm part Irish ;) Ireland to win.

Czech Republic-Montenegro should be the best tie of the play offs. Montenegro are an underrated side, Vucinic is a beast! They should see the Czechs off. Montenegro to win.

Portugal-Bosnia is the most one-sided game here. Apart from Dzeko, Pjanic & Begovic, Bosnia have hardly anybody decent. Whereas, the second best player on the planet plays for Portugal. Portugal to win.

Croatia, although that's a tricky one.

Ireland I think, and would like.

Montenegro, has to be! Those Czechs diving cost us the spot! (although, we shoulda performed better in other games, in the Group) But still, if that penalty hadn't gone in we still woulda been through.

Portugal, but I would like to see Bosnia do well.
